"Hoarders" Mentally Ill Or Lazy?

Caught a re-run episode of "Hoarders" earlier. It got me to thinking. Do you feel that these people are seriously sick or just plain ol' lazy? Myself, I believe it's a mental condition. It has to be. I've been in some messy houses before, but these people are doing it wicked. What do you think? Laziness? Mental Illness? Below are some images that show what I mean. The last thing in the world I want to do is offend anyone so I'm letting you know ahead of time that these images are gross. If you are easily disgusted don't look. lol

I'm sure at least some of them are, but I always figured they had the mindset of "Well probably use this again..." and not throw anything away. Then again, I've seen like 1 horders episode like a year ago so my opinion doesn't really mean much at all.

For me, it's a mental illness. I've know people in real life who are "hoarders". It doesn't even have to be to that extreme sense like the television show portrays. People can hoard things and it not end up like a garbage dump. Sad thing is, hoarding is a relatively "new" disorder to be studied. I think they JUST added it to the DSM 5 last year. If you don't know, the DSM or Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders is what psychologists and psychiatrists use to diagnose mental disorders.

Anyways. If we examine their behavior, I think it goes past laziness. These people grow attached to inanimate things (magazines, toys, cardboard boxes, whatever) and literally feel distressed if someone offers to throw it away. Laziness doesn't really provoke distress. It's the exact opposite. The unwilling to act. Hoarding is different. It's almost like OCD. These people are compelled to collect items that offer no practical use and refuse to throw them away. The people I've know would get very defensive and often have anxiety over the idea that someone might throw away their magazine from 1980.

I hate throwing stuff away. It may be useful one day! I may want to read it again! Or play it again. I DON'T CARE THAT I HAVEN'T TOUCHED IT IN TWO YEARS, I MIGHT WANT TO. >.>; Adam made me throw so much out when we moved. He said it's been in boxes since we moved in that place, obviously we don't need it, but I dooooo. I was able to sneak some stuff into other boxes. >.> At least I keep things organized though!

It definitely is psychological.

Over half of them are probably mentally ill, the extreme cases at least. My mum hoarded things, but it was no where near as bad as that. She just kept a lot of old stuff.
